Former Barcelona boss Guardiola said he "did not insult" referee Mateu Lahoz when protesting that a disallowed goal shortly before half-time should have stood.
And the Ivory Coast global hit out at his former coach in an interview to be published on Tuesday with the title, "Yaya Toure: 'I want to be the one who destroys the Guardiola myth'". "I do not like this kind of relationship", he told France Football. "When you see the problems he has often had with African players, everywhere he has been, I ask myself questions".
"The other players will never admit it publicly but some have already told me that they ended up hating him".
"I respect my coach but I am not his thing".
"I have tried to understand - I politely asked the fitness staff for my statistics and when I discovered that they were as good, sometimes even better, across training session and matches, than those who were playing and younger than me, I understood that this was not a physical question", Toure said.
Toure played 319 matches over eight seasons with the Sky Blues and won the Premier League three times and the FA Cup once.

"Last summer, when Pep brutally got rid of (Wilfried) Bony, who had been signed a year earlier for a huge sum, I asked questions", Toure said.
Toure is now a free agent after leaving City at the end of the season.
'I don't know why but I have the impression that he was jealous, he took me for a rival'.
"As someone proud, he wants to succeed with his players, those he has chosen and not those who have been chosen by others".
"I think I was dealing with someone who just wanted revenge on me", said Toure. "Do you believe that Barcelona could have done that with (Andres) Iniesta?" he asked.
'He stole my farewell with City, a club with attractive fans. I would have liked to leave this club with emotion, as Iniesta and Buffon were able to do. But Pep prevented me'.
